The WP framing square blade and lip are 1/4" thick aluminum, and the base is 3 layers thick. So any stops/gauges would need that 1/4" allowance. Regular framing squares are about 1/16" - 1/8" thick.

Anyone know if these will accept the stops/gauges for laying out stringers?  The small brass kind...  The WP seems to be a bit thicker than a usual framing square.

i view of your situation, I'd buy the Festool router table.

There exists a #3101411 (bessey number) set that contains all the black plastic parts (1 end, 4 rail, 3 jaw) for the KR/KRV ones (should be compatible with the new revolution, but I didn't check as I don't have revolution ones yet), retails here for ~7.5€ (incl. VAT).


I have been doing some searches since knowing about the protection pieces. The price you quoted for the set sounds very reasonable (about $11 Cdn) as compared to a pack of 2 rail pieces at $6 Cdn or more, not including shipping, quoted by some online vendors in Canada.

Heat gun and scraper can also remove the old oil based varnish. Then the sanding will be that much easier.

Festool How To... / Re: Conturo Glue Settings

I don't have the manual next to my but like i remenber it say's the edgebanding must be 100mm longer than the workpiece, not 10mm.
if you get more and more confident with the conturo you can get the extra length shorter, i think my conturo leaves no glue about 20mm from the edge.

Cool idea.  Necessity is the mother of invention. 

I like the idea of the dart tips for drying boards as well.  I usually use painters pyramids or drywall screws in a board upside down, but this idea is much safer.

Birdhunter and ear3, thank you for your recommendations!

I´ve already though about a router table from a third party supplier like Incra (not metric?)  or Trend or someone in europe. It should be something metric. But in my thoughts, the Festool tools would provide a consistent system where everything would fit together and on the other hand, which i forgot to mention, i have to be mobile because in my home i have not enough space so i would have to always put i somewhere after finishing work. And in my second flat on the picture, i have no space at all. I have to transport the tools to that flat, when i am finished, i take them back.

I i look to the Trend router table (PRT) it is not much cheaper than a Festool solution. And it is not specified for Festool. If i would find a rouetr table ready for Festool, i would take it into consideration, but until now the only general solution is that from Festool.

You might want to give this video a good look.  Larry lays out some techniques that you may not know about.  Be sure to let the tool do the work.  Also set the dust extractor suction to 1/4 to 1/3 full power.
